Noria del Ayuntamiento

Restored and relocated in front of the church of Nuestra Señora de Regla as a tribute to the importance that these artifacts had in the daily life of the inhabitants of the municipality. Being moved thanks to the force of donkeys or camels, they are called draft or “blood” wheels. The main beam, called “mijarra”, used to be made from the twisted trunk of a tamarisk tree. Located next to the wells, they allow water to be extracted and used both for irrigation and to give people and livestock a drink.
First the Firefighter donkey and then Pepe Cofete have been the most photographed animals on the island of Fuerteventura during the last decade. His image pulling the ferris wheel located in front of the Pájara City Hall is captured by thousands of tourists.
